The Peachtree Hills Festival of the Arts and the Living Social Wine Festival are both happening on the same weekend! The bonus for you is, [...]
I love sharing photos on Instagram! I’m a filter and photo edit app addict too. What I am not so good doing, is participating in the fun photo-a-day projects that float around in all my social circles. I started one month, and I think I made it to day 3. June is the month for [...]
I’ve attended multiple #SugarComa events presented by the lovely Shameeka, from The Broke Socialite, and I have enjoyed every single one, and so have my children. The Sugar Coma events are super fun and family friendly, and don’t forget about the awesome sugar high! And subsequent, inevitable, crash nap. Now there is a new event on the horizon! Wahooo! [...]
I struggle to work out on a regular basis. Yes, I go to the park with the kids, swim in the pool, but I never really schedule any specific time to workout. That needs to change. I am over 40, and need to focus on my health, not only for myself, but for my children. [...]
Thank you to Chick-fil-A and Mom It Forward for providing me the opportunity to host a meetup for sampling Chick-fil-A’s new premium salads. Chick-fil-A’s® entrée salad line is getting a makeover. A few week’s ago, I was happy to host a mom’s night out to sample three new premium salads now being offered. I arrived [...]

We’ve all been there. In a rush, in the car, and we automatically grab our phone because something urgent just popped into our over-stimulated brain. Being distracted when we are supposed to be focused on the road and driving causes accidents. It’s a fact. Too many people are multi-tasking in the car versus actually just [...]
Guess who is going out on the town tonight? Yeah! That’s right! This mom! Wahooooo! Tonight three friends and I are going to see Flashdance, the musical, and it is going to be so AWESOME! Celebrating its 30th Anniversary, the pop culture phenomenon of FLASHDANCE is now live on stage. With electrifying dance at its [...]

The festival is held each year in the month of September to celebrate the blooming of the Confederate Yellow Daisy. Families and friends can [...]
I know Halloween was last week, but I just couldn’t resist sharing pictures! I love Halloween, and we brought Baby home from the hospital on October 31st, so it will always be special to me. Here we are ready to go out and snag some yummy candy!
This past weekend was full of fun! My parents were in town, Baby turned 8 and we finally set to carving our pumpkin! After years of so-so pumpkins, I finally broke down this year and bought an actual pumpkin carving kit, complete with stencils. I told DH it was for the kids, but between you and [...]
Or maybe a better title would have been… Holy Crap! How am I old enough to have a SECOND GRADER! What a difference three years makes. Baby was 4 (going on 5) in the left picture, excited to be starting a new school in a new state. This year Baby is 7 (going on 15 OY!), and [...]
Now we just have to raise that seat for my tall girl! It seems she grew a few inches overnight again!
Nothing better for Baby, than some old fashioned Tic Tac Toe and some one-on-one time with Poppy.
Other Fun Stuff Going On In The Kitchen
Ever since I started baking with the #BundtAMonth group, I have been steadily feeding the cakes to my co-workers. The cakes disappear rather quickly, especially when the word spreads that my department has treats. On top of my coworkers enjoying the cakes, I am now getting requests for co-worker’s favorite flavors! This really makes my heart [...]
Here in the South our schools let out earlier than in the North. I have a friend in Maine that said her children will be in school 4 weeks longer than mine. Sheesh! My kids are already in full swing Summer vacation mode, and that includes a few fly by the seat of our pants [...]
Happy Sunday everyone! I am still in catch up mode since school let out last week, but I made sure I was signed up this week’s #SundaySupper because the theme is a favorite of mine – Summer Berries! I love summer fruit and veggies in general. They just taste so much better. We usually try [...]
Each morning I remind my 8 year old to brush her teeth, and every night without fail, I send her up to brush them again before bed. But I have a horrible confession to make. I don’t do the same. I am pretty much a slacker, when it comes to my own tooth protection and [...]
After 2 days back in the office, Memorial weekend feels almost like a distant memory. We enjoyed a whirlwind of family adventures, AND I made these incredible Crispy Hot Dog and Potato Kugel Cups! Friday was the last day of school for Baby, so we started the holiday weekend with some celebratory ice cream. What [...]
